Q: Could this be a wart?

Doctor

A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.

I guess you could not attach the photograph.
Wart is a viral infection of skin which can involve any part of the body.
It is asymptomatic.
It can be flat, raised, filiform or digitate with projected morphology.
Various treatment modalities are available including electrocautery, chemical cauterisation using Trichloroacetic acid or potassium hydroxide or phenol.
Visit your doctor so that he can do a physical examination and give you a prescription.
You can share my opinion with him.

I hope it helps.
Stay healthy
